Love Machine by Julien Deswaef (xuv)

The Love Machine is a bot that will Like everything your friends do on Facebook, it will log into a Facebook account, repetitively click the “like” buttons on every possible content shown in the home stream, then post its amazing score as a status and log out. 

Deswaef has had it installed on his own Facebook account, and has liked over 30,000 posts with it, causing confusion and distortion of the Facebook experience for himself, his friends, and others attracted to the account through Facebook recommendations. The animated GIF captures the Facebook warning signs it has encountered over time.

Anyone is free to download and install the bot for their own account from its project page or github. Deswaef has also kept notes of the project here and here
